Very good restaurant in Taranto Old Town

I really loved this restaurant. The food was very good (I particularly liked the choice of elaborated appetizers), the service was very friendly, and the price was OK.

Taken here by my best friend in Italy and i have to say...i would love to go back right now!!! The antipasto is phenomenal!!! The gnocchi fantastic!! And the views are simply gorgeous...you basically sit by the sea watching the fisherman boats in and out. The "cozze gratinate" is a super speciality, i love it and you should try anytime!!... More

The Old Town in Taranto is a nice place to have a little trip among churches and traditional fishers' houses. Besides you can have a walk in the early XX century town. Therefore, if you are looking for a place to have lunch/dinner, you can choose La Paranza and eat fish with a not expensive price. Appetizers "La Paranza" offer... More

My wife and I wandered into the restaurant as we walked the old city. Our Italian is challenged but we had no issues ordering a good, reasonable fish lunch. The restaurant seemed to be popular with the locals and it was quite busy. The service was fine. Taranto's old city is rough looking, so I would think twice about walking... More
